The One-Week Job Project - Sean Aiken


Synopsis:
When Sean Aiken graduated from college, he had no idea what he wanted to do with his life—so he decided to try everything. Thus began the one-week job project, in which Sean would work a different job each week for a year.
Sean's remarkable journey took him across North America working as a bungee jump operator, tattoo artist, aquarium guide, advertising executive, brewmaster, and cancer fundraiser. In each new job, he learned not only about himself but also about the people around him, finding out what drives people to choose a certain career, what makes them successful, and, more importantly, what makes them happy.
Over the course of his year on the road, Sean learned more about work, friendship, love, and life than he ever imagined. This honest, hilarious, inspiring account is a must-read for anyone who’s ever asked themselves, “What should I do with my life?”

My Opinion:
This is one of the coolest books I have ever read! The idea behind it is what fascinates me most. When Sean couldn't figure out his career choice after school, he came up with this ingenious plan to try a bunch of jobs and see where his heart lies. I had the utmost fun reading through all the 52 jobs, and was admiring his dedication and compassion to each one.
This is not only a book that adults can appreciate, but I personally think a teen close to graduation would benefit from reading it too. They may learn the value of responsibility, and making good career choices.
A definite recommendation from me!
(5/5)

  1. I really like the concept of this story. It is a question many of us have asked ourselves but never did anything about.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
